Day 23: Need for Speed

Everyone wants a fast WordPress website, one that displays content quickly when people visit.

Nothing is more frustrating than having to wait for a page or a post to load.

In his Need for Speed talk for the WordPress Hamilton Meetup group, Richard Rudy shares several tips about caching, image and asset optimization, and Content Delivery Networks (CDN) to help you optimize your site.

Two of Rudy’s recommendations:

  • Use the Asset CleanUp plugin to defer loading of unnecessary JavaScript and CSS on pages
  • Resize and compress your images

Check out the recap of Rudy’s presentation to learn web performance improvements you can use on your own WordPress sites.
